lyrics

This my favorite season since the last one
Hanging from the cherry tree shooting cap guns
Downhill red wagon ride on a wooded road
Tried to pull you off the path so you couldn’t go
Got my ten digits dirty with a shade of green
Nurturing the tomatoes and the basil leaves
Put the work in, waited back patiently
And saw a whole garden grow from the baby seeds
Maybe we ain’t got a clue, that’s okay with me
I’ve been good at playing make believe
But this change will break me to my aching knees
I can’t always be as strong as I claim to be
Shit…I’m still afraid of being normal
Still won’t let myself pray to be immortal
Still looking for the light and shine
Cause when I get it, love, I like what I find

I’ve a long way to go
All the things that I’ve done and the hours I’ve grinded
Made me a better man and made the sunflowers giant
I’ve a long way to go
Was in a hurry to grow, but I've been changing my mind
And learning how to take it all in a day at a time


This my favorite season til the next one
I got the cuts and scrapes to prove its been fun
Staring at the sunflowers with their heavy heads hung
I can tell that our bittersweet ends come
Handle it when it’s finally time to handle it
For now the horizons lined with shiny amulets
Things are simple, September with a sweaty brow
But I got a feeling that’ll flip when you bounce
My backyard is a colored jungle wonderland
Full of bamboo, hydrogeneas and sustenance
Funny how we can’t depend on what we've planned
The growing season’s now something that I understand
Still don’t know what to do
But I still got an ear and a shoulder for you
Still looking for the light and the shine
Cause when I get it love I like what I find
